Today my darling husband, Steve Howard, is guesting with his homage to bacon...uncensored and unedited.
I am always amazed at the reverence everyone gives to Chocolate. I do not find it sooo special. I think that Bacon is just as important but it doesn't seem to attract the same respect that chocolate does.
Today my goal is to give BACON the respect it has EARNED through longevity and hard work!!!!!!
Bacon and chocolate have many of the same qualities but from some reason if chocolate is involved it becomes glamorous. If bacon is involved it is ordinary. Today I want to stand up for the underdog (or PIG).
Bacon is used for cooking just like chocolate. You can bake with bacon. You can bake with chocolate. You can melt chocolate. You can use bacon grease to season. You can shave chocolate. Bacon bits!!!!! See the similarities are endless. Truly twins separated by birth. Chocolate was definitely adopted by the wealthier family while bacon was adopted by an ordinary humble household.
Bacon is currently trying to recapture its birthright by branching out of its typical role. It is not just for eggs and breakfast anymore. It is now being used in deserts and drinks. Bacon Milk shakes, which I predict will remove the chocolate milkshake from the menu and your memory. You now have bacon enhanced bourbon, which will also remove things from your memory. This will soon eliminate chocolate vodka. The battle of sibling rivalry is underway.
But bacon doesn't want you to forget that it has a compassionate side. Bacon also plays well with others, even chocolate. To show its solidarity, bacon is even willing to allow itself to be dipped in chocolate to show that there are no hard feelings.
I know that if the great cooking GOD Julia Childs were alive today, this humble blog post would receive a hardy HERE! HERE! I know that she was also a true lover of BACON.
The glamorous chocolate has received enough attention over the years. It is now time to stand up for Bacon and give it the attention that is deserves. Let’s hear from all of the Bacon lovers around the world.
HERE HERE for BACON!!!!!!
